In recent years the offshore wind industry has gained an increased awareness of the detrimental effects of underwater noise caused by pile driving. Fistuca BV is currently building a hammer, the BLUE 25M, that can compete with the largest hydraulic hammers in the industry, which tackles the noise issue at the source. Previous testing at a site next to Heerema vessel Balder showed a significant reduction in underwater noise levels.
